Show your Solidarity with AID sign now

We, the concerned Indians /people of Indian Origin /well-wishers of AID, urge the media and the society at large, to protest the ongoing intellectual violence in the name of "Terrorism", and the subsequent hate campaign started by the anonymous owners of AidIndia.info and their hate-mongers against the Association for India's Development (AID).

Association for India's Development (AID) has been working since 1991 towards sustainable solutions for problems faced by the poor in India. AID has always been inspired by the Gandhian ideals of nonviolence, pluralism and sustainable development and the philosophy of "Sarvodaya through Antyodaya", or service to all through service to the last person.

In recent days, a number of people have begun a cowardly campaign of slander against AID. Preying on peoples general concerns about use of charity funds, this smear campaign is trying to exploit the crisis of tsunami by making false allegations about AID hoping that they will simply be forwarded by neutral, well-meaning people. These are either completely fabricated or based on distortion and misrepresentation of information from AIDs own website (publicly available because of the open nature of AIDs functioning). AID has supported more than 400 projects, and its website has more than a 1000 pages; it is easy to search out a few and engage in deliberate distortion.

AID volunteers have always welcomed questions from its donors and well-wishers, and have gladly and patiently explained our work. However, a deliberate slander campaign requires to be countered directly, because such a campaign is a disservice to the donors and the community in general, as much as it is to AIDs work for the people in India.

We have printed a factual response - www.aidindia.org/AIDRebuttal - to specific false allegations that have been made against AID and are being spread through a couple of websites - www.aidindia.info and www.charitymonitor.org. We don't wish to engage in a shadow battle with these websites. Our purpose is to use our time in a way that best serves the people in India, not to keep issuing point-by-point rebuttal to such deliberate propaganda. Based on the points made here, the reader can draw conclusions about AID's work as well as the falsehoods that are driving the negative propaganda campaign.

AID is grateful to the community for its generous help to the people affected by the Tsunami. AID has responded with alacrity to this disaster using your contributions, and over 50 field reports from our ongoing work are available on our website. We, AID volunteers, promise that your trust is sacred to us. We invite you to join us as volunteers or donors, and interact with us at our regular meetings.

Kindly sign the petition and show your solidarity.
